Real-time temperature and maturity monitoring of concrete

SmartRock2™ is a rugged waterproof wireless sensor that allows real-time temperature and maturity monitoring of concrete. The sensor is placed in the concrete formwork (installed on the rebar) before pouring. Using the SmartRock2™ app you can view the temperature and resulting concrete strength in real-time.

ASTM Strength Estimation
Using the ASTM C1074 standard for maturity-based strength, SmartRock2™ can accurately estimate the strength of concrete over time.
Share data with the SmartRock2 app
Team Data Sharing
Sensor data is automatically shared and updated across your teams devices, ensuring everyone has the most updated results.
“The Giatec SmartRock device is the next wave in concrete maturity technology. This new and cutting edge concept puts quality control and quality assurance back into the hands of the concrete manufacturer and for the first-time ever, in the hands of the contractor. Operating the SmartRock sensor is intuitive and the confidence it provides is priceless.”
Jon Belkowitz, PhD
Head of R&D @ Intelligent Concrete
“The SmartRock2™ has been friendly in establishing maturity curves for our Wind Turbine projects. While on-site, the wireless capabilities have made the process of data retrieval simpler, and the ease of use of the application has saved time where it counts.”

Lead Project Engineer, Wanzek Construction Inc.
“Monitoring of the real time strength using SmartRocks has allowed us to advise airport personnel when to open a runway for use on a critical 56 hour closure. Their ability to remain below the top slab elevation allows workmen to place and finish the concrete without disturbing the sensors. The software has been excellent in strength estimation.”
Walter H. Flood, P.E.
Principal at Flood Testing Labs
“The SmartRock is extremely beneficial during the winter season. We find them particularly useful when building our bridge decks and drilled shafts. The sensor provides the ability to monitor temperature in real-time, and this is a key aspect for working during the colder months. The Smartrock is easy to use, quick to install and collects data effectively.”
Tyler Gluys
Project Manager at Beaty
“The new cloud features on the SmartRock2™ application have made collaboration significantly easier. Our team continuously connected and was up to date with real time information. The information can be shared in .pdf or .csv format outside of our team. The updates to the SmartRock2™ software have improved communication and supplemented information flow within and outside of our organization.”
Michael Zhou
Quality Engineering Specialist, Con Cast Pipe
“The SmartRock has been a good investment in that it’s extremely user friendly, convenient, and saves us time. I especially love that it’s wireless, because now we don’t have to go looking under blankets to find sensors or worry about making a physical connection. This alone saves us about an hour every time we record temperature.”

Live Overview

Tag sensor

Label the sensor with the tag indicating its location both on the sensor and in the mobile app.

Install sensor

Once onsite, attach the SmartRock2 sensor to the rebar by twisting the metal wires together. This will activate the sensor, measuring concrete temperature and strength.

Pour concrete

After installing the sensor in the formwork, pour concrete as usual.

Obtain results

At any time, wirelessly connect to the SmartRock2 sensor, and view the temperature and strength.
